MitraClip Video - Percutaneous Mitral Valve Repair

By Adam Pick, Patient & Author of "The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery"

As we await the FDA's panel discussion and decision on whether or not to approve the use of the MitraClip in the United States, I continue to received many questions about this non-invasive approach to treat mitral regurgitation through a catheter.

Thus far, I've been lucky to watch Dr. Saibal Kar perform a MitraClip procedure at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, California and Dr. Scott Lim perform a similar procedure in Charlottesville, Virginia. Needless to say, the MitraClip appears to be a very impressive technology. That said, I thought you might like to see a video on how it works.

I hope this video helped you learn more about the MitraClip!

Keep on tickin!
